We can deploy on-premises or on the cloud, but it's usually cloud. The amount of time it takes to deploy is really dependent on the client and the size of the company. I would suggest that sometimes it might be better to spend more money on better equipment that will perform a lot better, so if you have the funds go for it, but if not, then you have to work within your budget. I would rate this product a seven out of 10.

We're a partner with Cisco. We create architecture for customers and design solutions for surveillance products. We also deploy WiFi production engineers from our company. My advice to others considering implementation is to be aware of Meraki limitations. If you are not sure if the features you need are available, you should verify that with Meraki. It will keep you from having any surprises down the road. I'd rate the solution nine out of ten. It's a really good product.

My advice to someone considering this solution would be to use the white paper comparisons, they're excellent. Particularly not a newspaper review of a product, as it comes out of the box. That does nothing. But it has to really be an installation that is similar to yours. It might match the number of sites or match the number of consumers in the end but it has to be similar in some ways. Not a lab, a lab work doesn't tell you anything. That's like a practice run. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

We use the public cloud deployment model. I'd recommend the solution. It does depend on what the organization needs, however. I'd rate it nine out of ten.

I like this solution, it's really good. It's a good solution for small to medium-sized businesses or companies. We sell this solution to small businesses here in Belgium. Meraki is easier to configure than other solutions, which is most likely the reason why Cisco purchased Meraki. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

We work mainly with small and medium enterprises. We deploy the MR72 and 73 versions of the solution. In general, the solution performs well in Europe, but it doesn't comply with the GDPR, so we're not allowed to use it. I'd rate it eight out of ten.

I work with various versions of the solution, including MR32, MR33 and MR42. We're a reseller of the solution. We typically handle enterprise-level clients. I'd rate the solution ten out of ten.

The implementation and suitability of this product depend on the client and the want they want to achieve. When it comes to Wi-Fi wireless technology, you also have to consider 5G. The 5G is already here and it's the fastest, ever, wireless network. There is going to be a conflict between Wi-Fi and 5G when it comes to what enterprises are using. Wi-Fi 6 will help to keep the technology in the market. I would rate this solution a ten out of ten.

The biggest lesson we've learned is that wifi systems are very complicated. My advice is to be sure you understand the depth that the system gives you. I would rate this solution as eight out of ten. It's a pretty solid solution. It lacks the advanced features that I would like to see to do proper wireless engineering, but it's a pretty solid solution.
